Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The GMA-04 kit worked great for my alternator. The rear bearing is usually the one that goes bad and not the front. My alternator was working properly but the bearing was making noise. From experience, I know that leaving it this way, the bearing will eventually fail completely and could cause more damage to the alternator. At some point, the shaft could stop spinning or begin to spin crooked causing the serpentine belt to be thrown off while driving. This could cause damage to the belt, and also leave you stranded!
You will need a soldering iron to disassemble and also solder to reassemble your alternator. Also a puller is helpful for seperating the housing (you can rent one from your local Autozone or Advance store).
Customer service for the product is, in my opinion A+, if you happen to need it. The toll free number is on the package.
A voltage regulator is not included in this kit. The regulator does not often go bad. There is, however, a new...
What a great Kit! Not only did it include all the parts and instructions to repair my CS130D Alternator but it saved me over 120$ and I learned something new!
The local Auto parts store wanted over 140$ to give me a re manufactured alternator made in china which i really didn't trust so I decided to go ahead and give this a shot.
The kit was very thorough it has pictures and well worded instructions.
One thing to note for future buyers is you will need to do some soldering if you plan on replacing the bridge rectifier. Otherwise it was a pretty simple rebuild.
Im very happy with the quality and price through Amazon!
This worked perfectly. instructions are very clear (i thought) and the rebuild/repair went very easily. i did not replace the bearings in my unit, as it was previously rebuilt, and the rectifier pack is what failed.
Pros: cheap and very easy to do Cons:... ? bearings are not super easy to install
the Brush holder design on this is very simple, but so easy a caveman could do it!!!
